[image]Scholar Contemplating a Cascade - Yi Chong
The sixteenth-century ink-wash painting, a type rarely found outside Korean collections, uses strong, deliberate brushwork to convey ideas of space and perspective. Yi Chong, a Buddhist monk who came from a renowned family of artists, was a respected court painted during his short life. His work was heavily influenced by the Chinese tradition of the scholar-artist. The style of this painting invokes the Zhe School of Ming dynasty China, and the subject alludes to a poem by the Chinese poet Li Bo...

[image]Mrs. David Forman and Child - Charles Willson Peale
The wife of a wealthy Continental army officer and the mother of eleven children, Mrs. David Forman was portrayed by Charles Willson Peale in an interior that was meant to suggest the elegance and bounty of her domestic life. Peale was one of the rare American colonial artists to include paintings in his portrait interiors. The presence of the landscape hanging behind Ann Forman signaled the cultured life of the Forman household, and the gently idealized curves of its composition offered a paral...

[image]Small Card Decorated with Mount Fuji (recto) and Paint Bowl and Brush (verso) - Christopher Grant La Farge
Created for use as calling cards, place cards, or menu cards, these charming items indicate how the "Japan craze" permeated all facets of artistic production. Grant La Farge's familiarity with Japanese motifs (such as Mount Fuji, chrysanthemums, and bamboo shoots) undoubtedly came from his family. His father, the artist John La Farge, embraced Japanese aesthetics in his own work and also collected and published widely on Japanese art; Grant La Farge's mother, Margaret, was the grandniece of Comm...

[image]Apple Blossoms - John William Hill
This work depicts a tangled profusion of flowering branches in full sunlight as if viewed from below against a field of blue sky. Hill was undoubtedly working in accordance with Ruskin’s observation that the most beautiful position in which flowers could be seen was the most natural one—flowering plants against grass or moss, and fruit-tree blossoms against the sky.Object metadata can change over time, please check the Brooklyn Museum object record for the latest information.

[image]Yellow Blossom - John William Hill
After reading John Ruskin’s Modern Painters in the 1850s, Hill embraced Ruskinian aesthetic principles and became the first president of the Society for the Advancement of Truth in Art, the organization of the American Pre-Raphaelites. Hill’s commitment to exacting representations of nature is evident in his landscapes and botanical still lifes, such as this close-up study of a squash blossom. With fine brushstrokes, he articulated even the most minute details of petal creases and stem fuzz....

[image]The Sakonnet River - William Trost Richards
William Trost Richards achieved particularly rich color effects in marine paintings from the 1870s, the decade in which he actively embraced the watercolor medium. A devotee of outdoor sketching, he found seemingly infinite variations of sea, sky, and land during his extensive travels along the northeastern coast. (The Sakonnet River was located near Newport, Rhode Island, the seaside resort where Richards summered beginning in 1874.)Object metadata can change over time, please check the Brookly...

[image]Portrait of a Woman (possibly Mrs. James [Hester Stanton Plaisted] Gooch) - John Smibert
John Smibert's Boston portraits were often plain in composition and color, and stiff in expression (like this work). Nevertheless, for a time he was the most experienced and influential artist in New England. The Scottish-born Smibert had trained in London and traveled through Europe before settling in Boston. His studio and "colour shop" (art-supply store) contained his copies after important European works of art...

[image]Unknown Woman - Thomas Wilmer Dewing
Influenced by the works of James McNeill Whistler, Thomas Wilmer Dewing gravitated to the pastel medium for its evocative qualities, which were well suited to the pale, introspective female subjects he favored. Dewing adopted Whistler’s preference for assertively dark papers, but he far exceeded Whistler in his exploitation of the medium’s veil-like effects to evoke a sense of vagueness and immateriality.Object metadata can change over time, please check the Brooklyn Museum object record for...

[image]Woman in Manteau - Robert Henri
Painted in Paris at a time when Robert Henri was determined to make his professional mark, this work shows his favorite model, Berthe Terrier, in a manner deliberately recalling European Old Masters. Although he intentionally allied his art with revered tradition, Henri also inserted a contemporary mood by portraying Berthe with a bold, almost defiant expression. His efforts were rewarded, for the painting brought him favorable reviews when it was displayed at the Paris Salon in 1899.Object meta...

[image]On the Beach at Long Branch--The Children's Hour - Winslow Homer
In this engraving Homer provided a glimpse of holiday life in terms of levels of society within the domestic sphere. A young matron seems about to depart for the company of her social set, leaving her children in the charge of a nanny and a maid. Through careful observation of modes of dress, Homer not only made distinctions between leisure- and workingclass women, but also delineated the hierarchical differences between two members of household staff.Object metadata can change over time, please...

[image]Coaching in New England - Albert Fitch Bellows
The Brooklyn Museum’s collection of American watercolors was begun in 1906, when this work was acquired in a bequest from the Brooklyn collector Caroline H. Polhemus. Coaching in New England was the work of Albert Fitch Bellows, a practitioner and promoter of watercolor beginning in the late 1860s. To demonstrate that watercolor was as significant and as durable as oil painting, he deliberately produced large and highly finished “exhibition watercolors.” This quaint New England subject was...

[image]Homeward - George Inness
George Inness probably would not have considered this painting suitable for exhibition because it is not finished. It offers insight, however, into the way he worked. The trees in the middle distance still remain in a preparatory state, sketchiy rendered in the same type of charcoal drawing that guided the development of the rest of this composition. The looser, more freely brushed style of this work is very different from Inness's early, Hudson River school manner and signals the direction of h...

[image]The Old House - Jerome Myers
Jerome Myers's art is classified as Realism since he focused on the urban poor for his subject matter. Unlike many of his contemporaries, however, he refrained from making obvious political or social statements in his art and instead simply appreciated the visual excitement of New York s teeming streets. Myers wrote, "Curiously enough, my contemplation of these humble lives opened to me the doors of fancy...

The sitter was the only daughter of John and Ella Southwick, prominent Brooklyn residents who lived in a handsome brownstone house at 34 Livingston Street. John Southwick, a collector of paintings, owned Lake George, by John F. Kensett. and A Catskill Stream, by Asher B, Durand, both of which Susie Southwick would give to the BMA in 1933 in memory of her parents. Southwick also commissioned a series of family portraits during the 1870s...

[image]Study for I Know'd It Was Ripe - Thomas Hovenden
In contrast with the previous generation of American artists, Hovenden and his peers (most notably Thomas Eakins) added photography to the list of media in which they executed preparatory images for paintings. This drawing of a favorite model, posed as he would appear in the finished painting, was probably based on one of numerous photographs that Hovenden is known to have taken of the young man. The artist’s reliance on a photograph would account for the rather summary, intermittent quality o...

[image]Study of Two Dancers - Arthur B. Davies
Study of Two Dancers represents a later phase in the artist’s work, in which highly simplified outlines have replaced heavily worked forms and densely built-up surfaces. During the teens Davies was almost completely absorbed with the theme of dancers in movement, creating endless variations such as this one.Object metadata can change over time, please check the Brooklyn Museum object record for the latest information.

Manierre Dawson's education in civil engineering contributed to his early experiments with abstract visual language. Well versed in mathematics and trained to design two-dimensional plans that would translate into three-dimensional objects, Dawson here seems to use imaginary mathematical symbols (suggested by the title of the painting and by the grid of lines and the series of contained shapes) to arrive at a form of pure abstraction...

[image]Rockdale, Near Manayunk, PA - August Kollner
The monochromatic palette of grays in this watercolor—called grisaille—speaks to the German-born August Kollner’s training in black-and-white lithography. Although he was employed primarily as an illustrator and printmaker after settling in Philadelphia in 1839, Kollner was also an indefatigable landscape sketcher. During his extensive travels throughout the Northeast, he recorded the scenery in drawings that he would later finish in watercolor...

Samuel Colman discovered the scenic beauty of the Mexican landscape for the first time in 1892—a moment when it was becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination for North Americans. This view depicts the canal and "Paseo [avenue] de la Viga" just outside of Mexico City, a site that suited Colman's particular interest in painting architectural forms set within sun-bleached equatorial settings...
